In this edition of Bay Area Beats, we hear from Oakland musician Carina Ho. Carina studied ballet and played in bands for most of her life but never considered a serious career in the arts. A traumatic accident in 2014 changed that and set her on a brand new path. 

"Dance is a medium that is about expression. So, if you possess a body, that is the only requirement"

In the months and years following her recovery, she expressed grief and found solace through music, dance and film, earning herself a Fulbright Fellowship. She also performs music under the name Onikho and recently completed a film project featuring dancers with disabilities called "We Sleep No More."
